I hate this thing I swear. LOL Its smarter than me. Get it all ready to fire, putting oil in, and hear something that sounds like oil hitting the garage floor. Its an 03 motor, with 05 HP oil rails and 05 rocker boxes. Well the glow plug harness' are just slight shorter for the 05's, and wouldn't you know it, I have the 03's in the 05 rocker boxes, well given they are shorter, they do not seal, hence the oil hitting the floor. DAMNIT, DAMNIT, DAMNIT, DAMNIT, DAMNIT,DAMNIT,DAMNIT,DAMNIT,DAMNIT,DAMNIT, DAMNIT,DAMNIT, DAMNIT, DAMNIT, DAMNIT, DAMNIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is its first crank with a small shot of ether. I needed to prime it, and after about 3 cranks like this, I have 70 PSI of oil pressure. I need the glow plug harness, and it ****** runs boys. :clap::clap::clap::clap::woohoo:

Hope you don't use Fed-Ex. They take forever. Glad to hear that engine turn over finally.

OK, so I'm sitting here thinking this sucks, I'm not even gonna use the glow plugs........wait a second, that means if I modify the Existing harness, AKA: destroy the ends, it will still seal the holes.
